Our review

Super-powerful single headlamp, with some neat features but a massive price

Lupine have always liked to push the limits, but big Betty is up against some stiff competition this year.

Seven Seoul P4 LEDs make the 2009 Betty 7 brighter than ever, with a super-broad shotgun spread that lights up absolutely everything.

Its reach is fantastic, although some of its cheaper twin-lamp competitors (the Lumi LED System 3 Elite 26 and Tiger Light Twin LED sets, for example) are significantly brighter when both lamps are lit.

The preset ‘low’ rating is way too feeble after full blast, so the remote switch needs to be programmed straight away. Its weight is low though, and it’s easy to fit, thanks to the small battery O-ring mount.

A head mount, extension lead, car charger, sealant grease and a smart full data charger are included, but it’s still obscenely expensive.
